S andwiches are timeless. They have endless potential for variety, and have evolved from the stale bread of medieval times to the gourmet grilled cheeses and paninis of today. Valley Grove in Pleasant Grove, Utah, is home to another step in the evolution of freshly made sandwiches: Jersey Mike’s Subs.

Jersey Mike’s Subs transforms fresh-baked bread into authentic subs. The company’s motto is “A Sub Above,” and it’s easy to see why with their reputation for fresh food. The menu features cold and hot subs, wraps, kids’ meals, desserts and drinks, and even catering options. Gluten-free bread, fully customizable options for meat, veggies and bread seasonings, and an online ordering system keep the business at the peak of the ever-changing sandwich industry. The franchise has multiple locations, with the space from St. John Properties based in the middle of steady daytime traffic, providing easy access off the freeway and nearby offices during lunch hour. Jersey Mike’s divided their space at Valley Grove in half, offering a bright, welcoming dining space for customers, and a kitchen and food prep area for employees. Jersey Mike’s Subs collaborated with St. John Properties to guarantee that the space was exactly what they needed for fresh food and active customers. “We worked with SJP to get the right square footage and layout to accommodate our Jersey Mike’s Subs VALLEY GROVE 1882 Pleasant Grove Boulevard, Suite A Pleasant Grove, UT 84062 801.701.7115

co-founder and president of Jersey Mike’s Subs, said. The franchise’s latest development was adding a drive-thru for greater customer convenience, and knowing that St. John Properties was open to this made partnering with the landlord an easy decision. “We wanted to try a drive-thru location, and we were able to do that at Valley Grove,” Krueger said. “We also liked the location in terms of its relation to our other stores. The proximity to the freeway and offices/daytime population was also a big factor for us.”

Properties compared to working with other landlords. “SJP has a full team that is readily accessible,” Krueger said. “Other [landlords] we’ve worked with we’ve never even met, which forces us to work through a broker or property manager that really has no authority. SJP has been great to work with, and I love being able to get in touch with exactly who I need to when things come up.” With an easy-to-reach landlord, Jersey Mike’s Subs can focus on providing fresh sandwiches to hungry customers. From wraps to bread flavors to condiments, more sandwich evolution is sure to come, and Jersey Mike’s is happy to be a part of it all.
